JAMB sets March 23 for Mock Exam

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has slated Saturday, 23rd March 2019 for the conduct of the 2019 Mock exercise. JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs, Dr Fabian Benjamin, who made this known in a statement on Monday, urged candidates to begin the printing of their Mock Examination Notification slips from Wednesday 6thMarch 2019.

The rest of the statement reads: “Mock examination was introduced in 2017 to give candidates the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the conduct of Computer Based Test, particularly, candidates who are not conversant with the use of computers.

The Board would not want any candidate to be at a disadvantage position, hence the introduction of mock examination and other processes that would help the candidates during examination.

 The Board equally introduced the nine (9) keys without a mouse for candidates to use the computer with ease. The Board also uses the mock exercise to ascertain the readiness of its system and to appraise the candidates’ preparedness for the main examination

 This clarification becomes necessary because of insinuations from some quarters that marks from the mock examination would be added to scores obtained in the main examination. The Board enjoined all candidates to jealously guard all their details pertaining to the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME/DE) Direct Entry.

The public should therefore note that the mock examination as its name implies, would not be used for any assessment process. This year’s exercise is the third in the series of mock examinations conducted by the Board under the leadership of Prof. Is-haq Oloyede.”
